Our friends in the science department have asked us to pass along word of an opportunity for science-minded students in grades one through six.
Enrollment is now under way for Science Little League, which we’re told is a fun and educational after-school program offered by the Irvine Public Schools Foundation. Taught by IUSD teachers, these courses encourage students to explore scientific concepts in a hands-on environment. There is a cost to enroll, but some of the proceeds will benefit the district’s science program.
Each session consists of a series of five 90-minute classes, which will be starting soon at College Park, Culverdale, Greentree, Northwood, Santiago Hills, Stone Creek, Stonegate and Turtle Rock elementary schools, as well as Plaza Vista and Vista Verde K-8 schools. Organizers say there are still spots available, but enrollment ends on Friday, Jan. 25.
